Description de l'offre

Nature of the consultancy: National legal advisory services

Project Context and Scope:
Established in 1951, IOM is the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. In September 2016, IOM became a related agency of the United Nations (UN), thereby becoming the UN Migration Agency. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all.

The IOM Regional Office for West and Central Africa (WCA) based in Dakar, Senegal, provides programme support and technical expertise to 20 IOM Country Offices in the region, where IOM employs more than 2,000 staff.

As the UN migration agency, IOM mainstreams migration in efforts towards delivering the Sustainable Development Goals; supports governments to implement the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, and serves as Secretariat and Coordinator of the UN Network on Migration.

The Policy and Liaison Unit is responsible to support Member States in establishing comprehensive, rights-based migration policies and legal frameworks are crucial for contributing to safe, orderly and regular migration. The pressing importance of supporting Member States in WCA region on migration law and policy is reflected in the objectives of the Regional UN Network on Migration for WCA, co-chaired by IOM and another UN Agency. IOM aims to foster cooperative, informed and rights-based migration governance across the region, and to promote policy coherence, in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders. A key obstacle to the development and implementation of sound migration policies across the WCA region is the lack of comprehensive policy analysis and dialogue in order to inform policymaking on migration in the region, as well as a dedicated platform to facilitate exchanges between legal practitioners in the migration policy sphere in WCA in particular.

IOM therefore supported the creation of a professional network bringing together legal professionals in WCA to support migration law and policy developments, through expert analysis and dialogue, called the Network of Legal Experts on Migration for WCA. This network is now finalizing its first comparative analysis on “Migration and Detention” for publication. The Policy and Liaison Unit of IOM RO WCA has supported the establishment and operationalization of this Regional Network of Legal Experts. This initiative is part of IOM’s wider efforts to support governments and other stakeholders on migration policy and legislation, in pursuit of better migration governance.
